Shock In The Eye!
Posted 30 September 2004 - 10:33 PM
Now, you know how it gets.. sometimes, you focus so hard on the ground glass that when you look up, both your eyes are actually focussing on different points. I always found that amusing.
This time, it went a step further. I was barefoot in the studio. About an hour into the shoot, I get this rather powerful electric shock straight up my eye. My eyelid fluttered like a flag at full mast on a windy day for a minute. And I developed a tic in that eye for the next few hours... my eyelid would involutarily jerk every few seconds. And then it started watering for another hour or so, before it went back to normal.
Ladies and Gentlemen, this may sound funny, but you really don't want something like this to happen to you, especially when you are trying to shoot models who are supposed to have a 'solemn' look.
Leaking capacitor? At that point, I didn't care. The light was got down and packed away. I've heard of leaking flash capacitors in flash units giving photographers a mighty jolt. But getting one in the eye just about made my day.
Anything other strange stories like this one?

at least we got a "scary" story to tell to young children,
ps: beware that this could be more serious... beware of the electrons
